Me and my husband tried to get a table one afternoon, but had to make a reservation for the next evening since the resturant was full. It was absolutely worth the wait! The interior is charming and rustic, tables have "self-picked" local wild flowers, really...cute! We were served by a man (the owner?), who made us feel very welcome and he gave fantastic service and recommendations. We ordered a freshly made tomato and cheese salad as starter, super nice. For main we had the crispy duck and the beef cheeks..... Oh la-la! It was so delicious, and a real big serving. We both struggeled finishing it. For dessert we had home made apple pie, one of the best I have eaten! Highly recommend this place, and remember to make reservations since it's very popular!More

Every meal is made with love. I have not enjoyed such wonderful Polish cooking since I was a boy. We had lunch or dinner there every one of the 3 days we spent in Sopot because the food is just that good. And great value...for the price charged. No patron is treated like a stranger.More

Excellent quality and quantity of traditional Polish food. Very good value. The warm welcome from the staff went down particularly well. I will definitely visit again if I return to Sopot.

We arrived at the restaurant at 13:30 and could only order after 30 minutes, after another two hours our food was brought. The soup was cold, the food ok. The restaurant is super poorly organized.

Only 3 weeks ago I left a fantastic review for this place and released a YouTube blog advertising the place, just a couple of weeks later I returned with a group of 6 rather than being along. The service was disgusting! The staff had no...patience, the food was awful and I was embarrassed to have returned with a group. I regret sending others to such a place. The YouTube vlog has been removed and I regret ever sending others to such a awful place. For any who visited I am truly sorry.More

We stayed only a few days in Sopot and went to Irena because of a recommendation by our local host! It is a beautiful restaurant with a great and cheap kitchen (beer ~12 Zł, soup ~18 Zł and pierogi ~ 24 Zł)! All of the...dishes were very delicious and we have been served by a very friendly waiter. 10/10More

My friend and I wanted to try some Polish food but restaurants in the town centre served overpriced pizza and burgers we can eat anywhere, so we wandered out of the centre and were so glad we did!! The pork knuckle and beetroot soup were...excellent. The beef biurguignon was also delicious and I will revisit this place when I come back to SopotMore

The food was very good, there are several options to choose from and we were also happy with the size of the portions. Very good price for the quality. The atmosphere of the room and the staff were very nice too. We didn't book in...advance and managed to get a table but a few minutes after we wouldn't be able to so perhaps look into booking in advance.More

My boyfriend and I had dinner here tonight and had an excellent experience. The food and service was excellent. The local beer was a pleasure after a beach day. I highly recommend dining there since you will experience great food and hospitality in a quiet...environment.More

This is a typical Polish restaurant with a traditional interior. We had a 2 course dinner and everything was very good. Choice however was limited as they ran out of some food after a busy day, and it would have been better if they had...mentioned this whilst handing out the menus (vs at the time of the order). Of course this also means they work with fresh products, we would go back.More

We were there for lunch. It has a lovely cosy terrace. The food is absolutely delicious, the waiter, who spoke English (!), was super attentive and sweet made the whole experience even better. The menu is very reasonably priced and portion sizes are enormous.

We visited on a cold day so I was pleased to be able to enjoy their selection of warm mulled drinks and their food was equally warming. I enjoyed their rustic decor and the place was full of locals, always a good sign!
